2014-08-22 18:12:55 - Around 90 Munich museums, collections, galleries and churches have an open invitation out to visitors from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. to experience art and culture, science and technology in totally different light.
When the third Saturday night in October rolls around again in Munich and thousands go roaming the city with little booklets clutched in their hands, buses bursting with people are cruising the streets and lights in museums all over town never seem to want to go out, then it's time again for the Long Night of Munich Museums. A unique variety of exhibitions, guided tours, concerts and other special projects will be on offer. Besides the large Munich museums with world-renowned collections, a number of smaller museums and art projects will also be enticing visitors to their doors.
The “Lange Nacht-Ticket“ for 15 Euros will be valid for one adult and up to four children (4-14 years old) for the children's
programme in the afternoon and the evening programme. It will entitle the holder to entry into all participating venues and also serve as the ticket for shuttle buses and for use of the entire MVV Munich transport system (U-Bahn underground, S-Bahn suburban links, trams and buses) by one person from noon on the day of the event until 8 a.m. the following day. Tickets will be available starting in mid-September at all venues participating in the event and for advance purchase at the usual pre-sales offices (for example at Tourist Information München Hauptbahnhof (main station)), also at the box office in a tent on the Odeonsplatz (from 4 p.m.) and at each of the venues on the evening of the event itself.
From 2 to 6 p.m. on the afternoon there will be a large children's programme for the younger visitors, offering creative workshops, guided tours and interactive activities. There will be an extra “Kinder-Ticket“ for this. It will cost 2.50 € per person (child or adult) and will be valid exclusively for the children's programme on the afternoon (available at the box office of all participating venues, no MVV ticket included). But also the regular ticket can be used for the children’s programme.
Regardless of some of the venues being within walking distance of the city centre, many are also spread across the city. A shuttle bus system will make it easier to reach them, and help visitors stay on the right path and see as much as they can. Buses will be running every 10 minutes from 6:45 p.m. to 2 a.m. on five routes linking almost every museum. You can hop on and off at any stop and change routes whenever you like. The hub of all bus routes will be the Odeonsplatz. The buses are labeled with numbers for each route as they can be found in the programme booklet. Please note: The “Zentral“ line (Linie Zentral 90) links the large museums in the city centre.
